New Adelaide Airport

Adelaide Airport has finally opened their new terminal! Construction was done in October of 2005, the scheduled time for opening, however it was delayed due to some kind of contamination in the fuel lines that are used to refuel the jets.

Now that the new terminal is open, you can finally access your plane via an aerobridge instead of walking across the runway. Especially nice on cold rainy days!

Adelaide has a very small...

Adelaide has a very small airport but it is okay. there are regular frights from all of the states and also singapore and all of the usual spots.If you are in a different Australian state then I don't recomend travelling by train. the trains are very slow ( except for the gahn) take the bus, its not terrifically fast but it is alright and quite comfortable.
Don't rely on the adelaide transportation system, it is crap. Busses don't run at night, and the trains are usually slow and stop in dark, scary suburbs. Usually to get home from a party or club, take a taxi.

By Bus from the Airport

The frequent public buses # J1, J2 and J3 are AUD 3,20 between 9 am and 3 pm, AUD 5,10 on peak hours and weekends.The ticket includes transfer on trains and buses for 2 hours, you can buy at the driver (but if your transfer is for instance at 4.01 pm you need the peak hour ticket).

Adelaide International Airport (ADL)

South Australia's Capital City, Adelaide is serviced by one of the premier airports in Australia. Named as the Australian Capital City's Airport of the Year, ADL is no slouch on the airport circuit. Great facilities, plenty of direct and indirect connections, and a larger number of international carriers bless this tiny regional outpost's main air center. It is a shock to me that small Adelaide (in comparison to Sydney/Melbourne) could have similar or better flight schedules than their bigger brothers. Way to go politicians fighting for SA!

Domestically, ADL services Qantas, Virgin Blue, and Jetstar (the big three). Rurally, it has REX, National Jet, and O'connor for small hops. Internationally, Qantas, Cathay to HKG, Singapore, Malaysia to KL, and Air New Zealand if you are going to the "eastern states" of Australia, New Zealand.
